We had an amazing week in London visiting Department for International Trade (DIT), International Maritime Organization, Informa, Faradai.ai and RightShip as part of the İzmir Network and Innovation Centre (İzmir NIC) Project, run by Teknopark İzmir. Fortunately, this magnificent city welcomed us with great weather and lots of social events.
We gained a lot of knowledge from Zhi Dong and Michele Davidson-Jones of the Department for International Trade (DIT), who will pave the way for us to move our head office to London with the help of the Investin UK program in the near future.
With Emma Howell and Ian Beattie, we reviewed our marketing plan for 2023 as well as the details of Crew Connect Global which we will be sponsoring, during our visit to Informa office.
In order to discuss the possibilities for cooperation, we paid a visit to the International Maritime Organization headquarters and have the chance to meet with Cleopatra Doumbia-Henry from WMU, Mr. Mehmet Hanifi Güler and Ozkan Istanbullu.
We had a really beneficial meeting with Yücel Yıldız from RightShip to discuss how we could work together to help shipping companies comply with DryBMS regulations.
And finally we visited the Turkish Ambassador to the UK, Mr. Ümit Yalçın, and the Commercial Counselor, Mr. Devlet Selim Paslı and made a productive meeting.
Thank you so much for your hospitality and kind welcome.
